AKG and Soundcraft solution for Ground:zeroThe purchased system comprises eight AKG DSR 800 dual-channel receivers combined with DHT800 handhelds complete with D5 capsules and DPT800 body pack transmitters with AKG CK77 lavalier microphones
UK - Maidstone-based Phonophobia Productions has supplied 16 channels of the new AKG DMS800 reference digital mic systems plus a Soundcraft Si Expression 2 digital console to Rochester based Ground:zero Productions.

Supplied to Phonophobia by Harman UK/ROI distributor Sound TechnologyLtd, the system was sold to Ground:zero Productions to accommodate an increased demand for high end production equipment in their expanding rental stocks.

Ground:zero is an event production company specializing in the production of conferences, product launches, congresses, meetings and awards shows to the corporate market nationally and internationally. The company combines creative flair with technical expertise that includes video production, hybrid events and interactive audience engagement.

Phonophobia's MD, Mark Chant is no stranger to both AKG and Soundcraft. With a host of both AKG and Soundcraft in his own dry hire fleet, Ground:zero's decision to maintain continuity with the brands is based on a proven track record, and optimum performance.

Mark commented, "As we're both based in Kent, we've worked with Ground:zero for several years and shared our expertise. Thanks to our extensive dry hire fleet, we've been able to hire out both AKG and Soundcraft on many an occasion. Offering an advanced solution the gear has worked a treat on some rather important jobs. With Ground:zero's plans for investment it made sense for them to go a similar route, and purchase similar kit. It gives us the potential to align our rental stocks and continue to help each other out."
